Amplify nabs Sundance darling “Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Amplify has acquired the U.S. distribution rights for Craig and Nathan Zellner's Sundance standout “Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter”, the company announced, meaning that one of the most unique films of this year's festival will now see theaters, TheWrap reported.

The movie features “Pacific Rim” star Rinko Kikuchi as Kumiko, who ”lives in a cluttered, cramped apartment in Tokyo with her pet rabbit, Bunzo.”

“She works as an office lady, robotically preparing tea and fetching dry cleaning for her nitpicky boss,” according to the film's synopsis. “But on her own time, she obsessively watches a well-known American film on a weathered VHS tape. Rewinding and fast-forwarding repeatedly, she meticulously maps out where a briefcase of castaway loot is buried within the fictional film. Convinced that her destiny depends on finding the money, Kumiko heads to the United States and into the harsh Minnesota winter to search for it.”
